Recently, fuel cell with high energy efficiency and low CO2 emission is energetically interconnected with power system. Especially, FCGS(Fuel Cell Generation System) which usually operates at high temperature, is being developed and installed in the form of large scale system. However, it is reported that power system disturbances related to surge, harmonic and EMI have caused several problems such as malfunction of protection device and damage of control device in the large scale FCGS. In order to solve these problems, this paper presents a modeling of operation characteristics of FCGS by PSCAD/EMTDC, ETAP, P-SIM software. And also, this paper proposes countermeasure algorithms to prevent power system disturbances. From the simulation results, it is confirmed that the proposed algorithm is useful method for the stable operation of large scale FCGS.
